Liddicoatite Cleavage

When it comes to choosing the best pick among Green Gemstones gemstones, Liddicoatite is known to be a popular choice!Physical properties of Liddicoatite include its hardness, gravity, fracture, cleavage, etc. For any gemstone crystal, Liddicoatite Optical Properties are responsible for imparting various physical properties to its structure. Knowledge of these properties is equally important to gem-cutters as well as to consumers. Liddicoatite cleavage is nothing but the plane across which the crystal splits during cutting. Liddicoatite cleavage is Poor,and specific gravity of Liddicoatite is 3.02.

The physical properties of Liddicoatite, in fact, are imparted by the chemical composition of its individual molecule. The reactivity or inertness of the crystal is solely governed by its chemical structure.
